The Big Weekend is upon us! One of the most talked about Steampunk conventions, Steamcon III, will be taking place this upcoming weekend, in Bellevue, Washington! For those fortunate enough to attend, there is a cacophony of events to partake in, such as…
The Airship Awards Banquet (Friday, @ 7pm) – Presenting the second annual Airship awards to the outstanding contributors to the Steampunk genre.
The Amphirite Society Annual Tea (Saturday, @ 2pm) – The exceptionally talented Unwoman will be performing, as well the Bathing Costume Competition (oh, and tea, of course).
The Nautilus Concert (Saturday, @ 9pm) – The soiree will be opened by Miss Unwoman, followed by the exceptional talents of the phenomenal Vagabond Orchestra and the Clockwork Dolls, so it is certainly an event not to be missed!
The Wayfarer’s Bunch (Sunday, @ 11am) – Engage in a discussion of the expanding world of Steampunk, involving differing cultures from around the Victorian age!
With plenty of guests of honor, merchants, an art show, and much more, I would certainly pay a visit to the Steamcon III website, to learn yet more about this seminal event in Steampunk… so close the hatch to your boat and head to: http://www.steamcon.org/index.php
